This has been a see saw adventure with VW. The original glow plugs in the 04-05 Passat TDI's were ceramic 5 volt ones. VW came out with a TSB for a replacement to 7 Volt steel ones and for some reason, that was also an issue (hard starting). Along with this TSB was a code change in the ECU software. Then VW (silently) re-specified the NGK ceramic plugs and a code change again.

It has been a circus with VW on this issue.
